The Daryle Singletary Keepin’ It Country Tribute Show is scheduled for March 27 at 7PM. The event will be free and open to the public, allowing all who would like the opportunity to honor the late singer to attend. Less than two weeks before his death, he performed a similar memorial service for Country Legend Mel Tillis. And much like the Mel Tillis service, this one will also transpire at the Ryman Auditorium.
Performers scheduled to take the stage at the tribute concert include Darryl Worley, Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson, Jeff and Sheri Easter, Andy Griggs, Ben Hayslip, Jamey Johnson, Alison Krauss, Mo Pitney, Pete Schlegel, Josh Turner and Curtis Wright. 650AM WSM’s Eddie Stubbs will host the show.
Singletary died unexpectedly in his Lebanon, Tenn., home, on Feb. 12, after playing back-to-back shows on the road over the weekend of Feb. 9-11. He leaves behind his wife, Holly, and four children: 7-year-old twin boys Mercer and Jonah, 5-year-old daughter Nora Caroline and 3-year-old daughter Charlotte Rose. A fund to help his family defray the costs associated with his death has been established.
In his twenty four year career he charted five times reaching number two, released seven albums, and was most recently noted for recording a Bluegrass Duet album with Rhonda Vincent .
